The main event of the Grand Army Encampment was the grand parade which occurred today. To the veteran the prlvilegd'of again keeping in step with comrades of the bivouac of '61 is one for which no hardship seems too great . to' undergo, no order too sovere to undertake. Many who marched the two miles today were exhausted when the end was reached, and many others, weak ened by age, fell out of line long beforo the Journey was completed. These tot tering old veterans, regretting their inabil ity to remain in the parade and giving ev ery evidence of their feelings, would be cared for by the persons nearest at hand, led to a place where they could rest and recover from their exhaustion, it was a common slzht to see a gray haired old soldier sitting on the curbing gazing wistfully at his more sturdy com rades as they passed him by. Tho ovation given the marchers was un stinted. The streets were packed with people, and the windows and roofs of buildings along the line of march swarmed with humanity. The cheering was continuous, and the grizzled old war riors were kept busy bowing acknowl edgments 'and raising their hats in cour teous salute. The column formation for the great parade was as follows: Order of March. Platoon of mounted police. George "W. Cook band and drum corps. Grand Marshal Colonel George, El Ran dolph and staff.

Jng, and the annual Grand Army parade has never taken place under more favor able auspices. Arrangement Most Perfect. Three hours were consumed by the pro cession in pansing the grandstand. Col onel Harper Morchood. chairman of the . parade committee, estimated that 1S.O00 members of the Grand Army participated In the parade Kansas carried off the honors for the largest representation, having nearly 2500 men in Use. The most perfect arrangements portble for communication and emergency service were provided. Telephone station? were placed along the route of march and phy sicians were In attendance every block or so. A horseman was unseated by his frlghtoned mount and In falling broke a finger. A surgeon stationed near by had nsen the accident and the man was astride his animal and in line again before the procesoSon had progressed two blocks from where the accident occurred. General Donaldson, of St Louis, was stricken with heart failure, and was car ried to a hospital 'in an ambulance. His recovery is doubtful. Ex-Rebel Waves Union Flag. There were many interesting features connected with the parade, but perhaps the most impressive was the appearance of an ox-Confederate soldier in the gray uniform of his fighting days. ' A great cheer rent the air an he stood alone in a carriage waving the Stars and Stripes and bowing to the multitude Both the National Encampment of the G. A. R. and the annual meeting of the Woman's Relief Corps will open tomor row morning.
